"Space Jam: A New Legacy" is a film which depicts an "e-sports battle" unfolding in an "infinite virtual multiverse" where LeBron James, the basketball player who has been called the greatest player in the history of the NBA, as a main character, and also the characters and films of Warner Brothers, which has produced numerous masterpieces since its founding in 1923, will cross-functionally appear.
In this film, LeBron and his team of friends from the Looney Tunes animated series, who has represented Warner Bros. since its first appearance in 1930, will finally be seen in 3D for the first time in a movie after more than 90 years of its history.
And this time, part of the full-length video showing the moment when they upgrade from 2D to 3D form was exclusively released on Anime! Anime!. Devin Crane, who directed the animation for this film, said, “Since ‘Tunes’ are so familiar to the audience, I felt that we shouldn’t lose sight of the individuality of each character. What’s important is to keep their personalities intact. This personality is expressed in their habits, behavior, and movements. The interactions between the characters must also be portrayed realistically. Tunes is not just an animated character, it’s a full-blooded being,” he said, revealing that he upgraded the characters with respect. By doing so, they succeeded in bringing out the new charm of the 3D characters while maintaining the cuteness and individuality of the 2D characters.
Please visit theaters to see what kind of “virtual battle” they will have with LeBron in 3D.
LeBron James, a basketball superstar, and his son, Dom, are sucked into a movie company’s AI super server called “Warner 3000″ one day. They find themselves in a virtual multiverse inhabited by King Kong, Batman, the Joker, and other characters from Mad Max and The Matrix. Al-G Rhyme (Don Cheadle), a man who plans to take control of the world, seduces the son Dom, who has wandered into the system, into fighting his father LeBron in a match. In order to save him, LeBron must defeat the Goon Squad [the most powerful army of killers], a team of the game characters chosen by Al-G-Rhythm and created by Dom.
If you lose, you’ll never be able to return to the real world.. Team up with the strongest characters from the movie and try your best in the ultimate e-sports battle!
